Excellent. Thanks everyone. Now, need advice on how to break DH's habit! (I found my newly purchased pint of grape tomatoes in the back of the fridge this morning!)

I spread them out on a paper towel lined tray and set them in a cool spot out of the sun (my dining room table). It really ruins the flavor to put them in the fridge.

You people have leftovers?? Just kidding. When I was first married, I used to put them in the frig, like my momma taught me. Now I know better and leave them on the counter.

You know most people scoot into the grocery store for milk bread and eggs. Well I scoot in for tomatoes,fruit and the such.

On the counter, all the way with tomatoes!!

As fall arrives, you can store the green tomatoes still left on the vine, on the counter also. I find a sunny window ripens them nicely.

Best tomato for slicing....Brandywine.....YUM! thick like a burger and delicious

As far as DH goes, why not give him a taste test....one nice and sweet from the counter, one cold and clammy from the fridge. (?)

cheers!

I have old fashioned windows and they look charming sitting up there in the afternoon sun. Makes me feel art-sy!
